How lovely is this Cold Processed Soap? Tanya C has shared her recipe with us, so why not make this luscious, feminine soap, designed to celebrate Mother's Day.

This soap has a creamy base colour with a pink and mauve swirl.


If you are a beginner, we recommend you make a couple of batches before attempting this soap so that you know what to expect.   For how to make soap from Scratch, please see our Cold Process Soapmaking Instructions.  You can also watch Soap Queen's You Tube Series on Cold Process Soapmaking.


  • Add silk fibre to water and sprinkle sodium hydroxide on top of silk carefully!  Follow all safety procedures for mixing lye solution.  Silk will dissolve as the lye dissolves; stir occasionally.  Allow to cool to 30°C

  • Add Titanium Dioxide powder to either oils or aloe juice depending on whether it is liquid or oil dispersible.   Bring oils to 30°C.  I soaped a little cooler to help slow trace down a bit.  I add my aloe juice to my oils before mixing in the lye solution (just a personal preference, and may help keep the batter a lighter tone in the finished product)

  • Follow instructions for an ITP swirl.  I used about 1 cupful of traced soap batter for each of my two colours - colouring one 15 drops Pink Brites for CP and the other with 15 drops Brites NG Hot Pink and 5 drops Brites NG Sky Blue

  • I used a Nizzy 12 bar divider mould (we now stock Silicone 12 Bar Rectangle Moulds) and after pouring in the soap batter I waited until it had reached a thick trace then swirled top of soap with a chopstick to get the texture in the pic.  Then place dividers and cover for gel.

Note: Most florals do accelerate trace to some extent, so if you are inexperienced, use full water content.
